I just came across a well-done slide-show at NYTimes.com entitled “why we travel.” It’s a travelogue written by everyday travelers with their mini-stories from life on the road. What initially caught my eye was the first slide of a guy jogging at Sacsayhuaman (pronounced “Sexy Woman”), an Inca ruin right outside of Cuszo, Peru.
I was there last week and trust me, there were definitely a lot more people at the ruins than from what you would think looking at the shot. I wouldn’t have thought to get up at 5 in the morning, and take a jog there, but now that I think of it, that would be a pretty memorable experience–just watch out for muggers and lack of oxygen.
Anyways, there are some interesting ideas in the slide-show for your next vacation or adventure. Check it out.
